I am trying to install cabal-install 0.8.2 with GHC 6.12.1 on a CentOS 5.2
system and am running up against a 'ExitFailure 127' error.
I can download the package and run 'cabal install' inside the package
directory and all will be fine, but if I let cabal download and install the
package cabal runs into problems as soon as it tries to configure.
For example, if I try 'cabal install permutation --verbose=3' it finishes
*** Deleting temp files:
*** Deleting temp dirs:
--verbose=3 --ghc --prefix=/home/chris/.cabal --user --constraint=base
==126.96.36.199 --constraint=ghc-prim ==0.2.0.0
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
permutation-0.4.1 failed during the configure step. The exception was:
I have tried the same exercise with GHC 6.10.4 with cabal-install 0.8.0 the
I have downloaded the Cabal sources to try and add some instrumentation to
find out what is going wrong I have yet to succeed.
Does anybody have any suggestions? Is there an easier way of getting
cabal-install working on CentOS?
Any help much appreciated!
